Citing Musical Works

Musical works are cited in different ways depending on their medium. Sound recordings are different from sheet music which is different from .mp3 files, so it's important to be specific when you cite a work you have used.

  • MLA (Purdue OWL; includes sound recordings, spoken word albums, and digital files)
  • APA
  • Chicago/Turabian (Florida International University; includes sound and video recordings, scores, and live performances)
